GRR: Sacramento State
Sacramento State defeated Stanford 21-17 to win the Pacific Western Rugby Conference Men's College 7s Saturday, going 4-0 on the day.
Led by an MVP performance by Arnold June Walker, Sac State got big performances from Amir Frazier, Vincent Pace, Kellan Fisch, and Miles Brown. The Hornets accomplished this victory despite missing Cutler Pons and Josh Reyes due to injuries.
San Diego State put in a solid performance in the California Conference Saturday with a 64-12 defeat of Sacramento State.
The rain in Southern California may have played havoc with training schedules, but it also served to make the rugby fields greener and softer, which was most welcome by the players.
With three games done in the California Conference, Saint Mary's, as expected, leads.
And so we’re down to eight teams in DIAA, and it’s time to make some picks.
Upset? What upset?
Sacramento State might have been the #2 team out if the Pacific Western Conference, and they might have been playing the #1 team out of the Gold Coast, but the Sacramento State players and coaches did not think it was an upset to beat the 49ers and make the DIAA quarterfinals. Not by a long shot.
